Horizon scanning for invasive non-native plants.
Invasive non-native species are considered to pose one of the greatest threats to biodiversity and the economic-wellbeing of our planet. The problems caused by invasive non-native plants can affect our lives, for example by reducing crop yields, producing skin-burning sap or increasing risks of flooding.
In this report we profile a selection of 20 Sites In Peril – areas that are threatened, or already being damaged, by invasive non-native plants - and describe research undertaken to try to identify which non-native plants may become invasive in the future.Download this publication
